DIY // Fruit macarons

Yes, it’s only been five days since I’ve last played with my food. This time I had a little encouragement though after a Friday morning meeting with Bite Macarons here in Houston, when naturally I left with two dozen colorful cookies…

Seeing as how the fruit trend is still going full force and I’m surrounding myself with bad macaron influences, I decided I’d try my hand at a little fruit cookie action to make my college art career worthwhile. Luckily my career there wasn’t super impressive and there’s this magical thing called Amazon Prime that sells pre-made royal icing goodies, so these are sure to be do-able for the masses. With all of this in mind, these DIY fruit macarons are surely destined to reignite the dying fruit basket, or kabob, or cake.. I could go on.

You know the videos on Youtube about the news anchor trying to present a story and then they fall off of their chair or get caught with no pants on by accident? Well that’s kind of how I feel about accidentally posting this DIY last week when it actually wasn’t live yet. Whoops! Don’t worry, I added it to my very long list of blog bloopers for the record book.

In the meantime, you can now (finally) see the full post over on Julep. For those of you that didn’t see it’s accidental debut early last week, let’s just pretend this intro never happened!

DIY // Ikea hack ice cream cart (and sprinkle bar!)

Well my friends, I present to you today the Holy Grail of DIY’s. It combines two of my favorite things: ice cream and Ikea hacks. There are also sprinkles involved, but I don’t want to make anyone unexpectedly burst with excitement, so we’ll move on.

This DIY Ikea hack ice cream cart is about as simple as it gets (keeping in mind it does involve a teeny bit of Ikea style assembling) and just about every kid in the neighborhood will want one, myself included.

I also teamed up with the ladies over at Poppies for Grace who supplied a lot of the paper and balloon goodies for the project, and I’m in love with how it all turned out! I wanted to keep up with the ice cream theme since it’s National Ice Cream month, but since the studio doesn’t actually contain a freezer (just yet), I stuck with the kind of ice cream that doesn’t melt…

DIY // Reusable gold drink stirrers

Once upon a time I emailed Bombshell Bar Goods and practically begged her to be best friends, and by that I mean I asked her if I could use her glassware forever and ever until the end of time — I loved it that much. Obviously I needed a fitting embellishment to go with my token white and gold go-to color combo, so I made these DIY gold drink stirrers. Technically they’re brass, but girlfriend has a strict budget…

Before anyone goes jabbing at me with food safety regulations, let me come to my own defense by saying that A) I grew up playing in creeks in West Virginia that no one has even thought of enough to name, so food safety isn’t one of my fears or top concerns in life, and B) the FDA website specifically states that brass is food safe as long as it’s not in contact with food or liquids with a pH level below 6, such as wine, vinegar, or fruit juices. There, that’s my PA for the day, now the rest is up to you to decide if you’re okay with a little brass.

Now that that’s behind us, we can move on to the cuteness that is gold drink stirrers that you can make in all of five-minutes…
